I got jiffy pots mh/hps light with timer created my own grow tent with the mylar I’m really stuck on how much of the fertilizer and how I use it . they give you in the kit. would love to hear any tricks of the grow trade I also got hydroponics soil
Really appreciate any and all information and advice.

The feeding schedule will depend on what grow medium you are going to use. When you sau you got “hydroponic soil” want do you mean? Is that the name brand?

If you are going to grow in soil use this feeding schedule

If you are growing hydro or in a soiless mix use this feeding schedule

It will be a few weeks before you will need to add nutrients.

One of the most important things you will need is a digital PH meter so you can monitor and test your water. This is an important step that can save you problems later on.
Also when you get your seeds germinated and put them into soil be sure to only moisten the soil. You don’t want it wet this a common roomie mistake that will hinder your success getting a healthy seedling. I would recommend using a seedling starting soil for planting your seeds, it isn’t necessary but you just want to be sure the medium you plant your seedlings in doesn’t have a bunch of nutrients in it as it can negatively effect your seedling.


Man you guys are the best appreciate all the information wow wow wow glad I ordered from the site and glad I’m on the site

Have a good time -

It truly is one of the best if not the best site on the net for growing cannabis in my opinion.
Even if you purchased your seeds from a competitors sote everyone on here would still be more than willing to give you a hand.
If you ever have questions don’t hesitate to ask. The dumbest question is the one that isn’t asked :+1:
Happy growing.
